About the FHS

The FHS consists of a set of requirements and guidelines for file and directory placement under UNIX-like operating systems. The guidelines are intended to support interoperability of applications, system administration tools, development tools, and scripts as well as greater uniformity of documentation for these systems. The Filesystem Hierarchy Standard is an affiliated project of the Free Standards Group and is part of the Linux Standard Base.
